agreement with the third nraet and the one map locally in san francisco under ir cal fire prides itself on a statistic that we contain 97 percent of all wild fires in california with 10 acres or less and we do this with an aggressive report of incidents, even with a 911 call of smoepk with land, air and ground attack. once fires become to a large enough scale we call mue tour aid, california lass a great mue tour aid system. i think it's looked at nationally because we have souch excellent cooperation with our cooperating agencies. once it reaches that point, the team will come in and assist the local jurisdiction to run that incident. when we start having multiple fires in a certain area, then we get into what we call area command. i think that provides the overview. >> i talked a little bit about mou's and relationships with the marines. maybe we can talk about how is the national guard and dod resources and capabilities integrated into the command and control at the fire and also the supporting ops centers whether it be the gac or other centers down there. maybe our military pe
squadrons. one consequence of that would be multiple squadrons providing aircraft to cal fire to support the fire fighting effort and one somewhat simple but very effective solution was the use of defense connect on line, the dco chat room. basically cal fire personnel, along with all the individual squadrons, all connected realtime able to communicate and coordinate both from the squadron and also on scene. >> well, thank you. let's go ahead and move into relationships. we had a significant discussion yesterday about relationships and again the highlighted and supervisor chiu's comments this morning. how do we ensure they are enduring past the past couple years. >> as general speese said yesterday, we are here for the long time. on the installation side which we coordinate with cal fire and the navy we have annual exercise and we hit that every springtime prior to the fire season. i think what's also, it's important to remember that although it was stressed, the military members are members of the community as well so let's not forget that as far as active duty. althoug
of lessons learned being applied. first to my left, ray chaney, cal fire incident battle xwrupb chief. to his left, colonel laura yeager, 40th combat aviation brigade. to her left, commander steve everett, to his left lieutenant colonel dana, marine corps installation west. thank you. let me go ahead and start off by talking a little bit and just going back over some of the discussions yesterday that i think are going to play into this discussion. we had vice admiral beeman talk a little bit yesterday about capabilities and vice admiral zunkoff talked about partnerships, unity of effort, unity of command. mayor lee talked about dod efforts, expertise, community efforts and as we go into all those discussions today you will see best practices applied during the 10 years from those fires. i have the pleasure of working for administrator fuget in fema headquarters. fema's role is to coordinate response between state and local governments and his focus, his direction to us really comes down it 3 things. he asks us to always plan for the worst case, the maximum of the maximums and it'
, it was a little bit different for us as far as what happened there. like cal fire wants to, just like we all do, is aggressively attack things. but we have the applicable policies and orders that really regulate us a little bit because it's got to meet certain thresholds and sometimes like in this last one, it was a remote fire, very small, but it didn't meet some of the thresholds initially but we postured and as soon as it crossed the line they were ready to attack it aggressively. those are challenges we have to work with as well but we're ready to provide that immediate response when necessary. >> we talked a little bit so far about training exercises but maybe from the navy perspective, the marine perspective, the national guard, what training exercises are you doing right now to integrate with cal fire or other local governments to make sure that we're ready for this fire season? >> well, as far as i expressed earlier, we have the springtime exercise. that was our fifth annual one. we will obviously continue that through. just like we were speaking about yesterday, maturing the proces
unsend cal unironic, straight ahead heartwarming story. apply a corporate climber who is on the fast track and i have to learn to dance for the company christmas party. i go take waltz lessons and fall in love with my teacher. it gives up the idea that happiness comes with a paycheck and it's really about a matter of the heart. it's exactly one of those hall mark themes rolled into one with little dancer tloen thrown in. sdmrsz -- one a little dancer thrown in. >> are you a dancer? >> i am. i didn't dance at all before the movie. i had to learn how to waltz. you learn things you just wouldn't in your normal life. i wanted to know how to dance but had a fairly typical male resistant and inhibition to it. i had to learn for the movie. i was terrible at it at first and for quite a long time. eventually the penny dropped and i loved it. there's something about the formality of it. i like that. >> identify i identify with that because having to dance for a family a wedding several years ago my wife and a i went and took dance lessons. it did not come easily to me. if you were back on the
-qaeda, the origin alice lammic call -- islamic cal fate right there -- caliphate right there. that's what kunar potentially gives. again, i think the glass is more than half full. kunar will not elect, the people will not elect that kind of, those kind of transnational groups to really infest and come back in. >> tell me why, why you think that some to have local dynamics that you've seen that make you think that, um, some of the local folks in kunar perhaps accept these groups because they use force rather than because they share ideology. >> absolutely. coercion is a big piece of this. i mean, there's coercion. we had several groups go into villages and kidnap men and women and hold them hostage so the village would turn and support whatever element that went in there. that happened in kunar. and, actually, that was one of the guys we were chasing down pretty hard the entire time we were there. he was just an absolute sociopath. but i think more it's from what i saw al-qaeda or whomever comes in there and tries to take over the whole province is going to have to resort to a spectrum of violen
